    If you'd rather just look at the final code to see how it works, go check the projects.ts file in my websites GitHub repository.

  • sanity

    The Sanity Studio – Collaborate in real-time on structured content

    I found most people were happy to recommend other headless CMS services like Strapi, Sanity, GraphCMS, etc which did seem to do the job I wanted of providing a platform for me to curate & manage my content without having to redeploy. But most of them had the same issues that I didn't like.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • Strapi

    🚀 Open source Node.js Headless CMS to easily build customisable APIs

  • Next.js

    The React Framework

    To get this working there are 2 key things we're going to need: Next.js & the GitHub api. Optionally you can also use some kind of cache, like Upstash, to cache your data & save on requests to the GitHub api.

  • Puts Debuggerer

    Ruby library for improved puts debugging, automatically displaying bonus useful information such as source line number and source code.

    Since re-launching my website with an all new redesign I added a number of cool features. One such feature I thought worth sharing about was my portfolio page as it actually uses GitHub as a CMS (Content Management System).

  • github-docs

    The open-source repo for docs.github.com

    To get this working there are 2 key things we're going to need: Next.js & the GitHub api. Optionally you can also use some kind of cache, like Upstash, to cache your data & save on requests to the GitHub api.
